Requested information for my sister Donna

Mixed Blessing Box ingredients and symbols each stands for.

The Ingredients are Pretzels, Bugles, Peanuts, candy corn and Orange slices.

The Bugles are a symbol of the Cornucopia, a horn of plenty.

The Pretzels represent arms folded in Thanks & Prayer.

The Candy Corn reminds us that during the winter, the Pilgrims were allowed only five kernels of corn per day because the food was scarce.

The fruit is a reminder that Thanksgiving is a celebration of the harvest.

The Peanuts represent seeds, the potential of the bounteous harvest of the next season if they are planted and well tended.
